I am really glad I decided to go through with WITL. I had a much better day today. Feeling much more upbeat and positive. I spent quite a bit of time today online. Sorting photos and playing with Ae's digital elements. Aaron even contributed with some photos from work. Some good news (in the form of acknowledgement and appreciation) on that front also helped lift my mood. Perhaps things really are looking up. Sssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Don't tell anyone I said that... I might jinx myself. :P
Callie and I still bump heads continuously, like the goat and ram that we are, Aaron reminds me. But she has been a great help with the boys this week. Getting them in the shower in the evenings and getting them up in the mornings. She forgot her SmartRider this morning so had to dash back to get it. I love capturing these silly everyday moments that would be so easily forgotten. On their own they might not seem much but stitched together they are the tapestry of our lives. Right here. Right now. I especially love the moments of them all playing Minecraft together. It makes my mumma heart so very happy.
I have a bit more of a plan in my head now about how I am going to pull all these photos together... My thoughts are so far that I am going to follow a formula of page protectors in the same order each day. As Ae describes here. So each day will include a main 6x8 photo, a 3x8 photo (or a collage using the layered templates or possibly both back to back), four 3x4 photos, two 6x4 photos and then a 6x8 collage to include extra photos and stories.
